Starting with the visual updates, the Nissan MPV now gets the ‘double V-motion’ grille. The standard models get a black surround for the chrome grille with twin slates. Adding to its sportier looks is the sharper front and rear bumper designs.

However, it is the Highway Star model that grabs all the attention with its unique full-length grille that extends all the way to the centre air intake - they come with chrome inserts that have a jewel-like look. The front bumper gets L-shaped inserts on the edges that are now aggressive and larger than before, the same reflects on the rear as well. The car stands on 16-inch two-tone alloy wheels, and the rear gets LED taillights that give the car a wider look via its outward curve.

Both the Nissan Serena models come with redesigned split headlights with chrome strip instead of body color units. On the Highway Star model, the headlamps flow into enormous grille chrome borders neatly. The range-topping models display LED headlights with 12 diodes on each side that can be operated individually.

The facelifted model now comes with two new exterior color option - Dark Metal Grey and Sunrise Orange - both can be opted with a two-tone scheme with a Diamond Black roof. The e-Power models benefit from the new, aerodynamic 15-inch two-tone alloy wheels.
